Report: Sevilla join race for Celtic's Dedryck Boyata

Sevilla reportedly want to sign the Celtic man soon.

Celtic's Dedryck Boyata celebrates winning the William Hill Scottish Cup Final between Aberdeen and Celtic at Hampden Park on May 27, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

According to The Record, Sevilla have joined the race for Celtic star Dedryck Boyata after losing Clement Lenglet.

Boyata, whom Celtic value at £10 million, is out of contract next summer and has attracted a number of clubs in Europe.

Lazio and Fulham have been heavily linked with the Belgium international after helping his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia earlier this summer.

The closure of the Premier League transfer window appeared to favour Lazio but it looks like the Celtic man might have another suitor - Sevilla.

 

According to The Record, the Primera Division side, who lost Lenglet to Barcelona in a £35 million deal, are keen to replace the Frenchman with Boyata.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers admitted earlier in the week that he could lose the 27-year-old, who has been so far unable to sign an extension despite negotiations.

Losing a player of Boyata's calibre would be a big blow for the Hoops and with Rangers looking relatively decent so far, a replacement is vital if he does leave Parkhead.
